I came across a video the other day of 2 guys, Matt and Thomas from Seek Discomfort, who stayed in Singapore’s Changi Airport for 4 days. According to the video, they entered the airport with a boarding pass to a flight they did not intend to take. When they “missed” their flight, they instead stayed in what is listed as the world’s best airport for 4 days. They took advantage of the airport hotel, swimming pool, restaurants, movie theater and more.

At one point in the middle of the night, they were awoken by 2 police officers doing a security check. Luckily for them, by that point, they had already purchased a flight out of Singapore, and although they didn’t yet have their boarding pass, it was close enough to their departure time that they did not get arrested.

Disclaimer: Do not try this at home. Well I guess you can’t actually try this at HOME, unless your home is Changi Airport. But do not try to recreate this. 48 hours is the max that you’re allowed in Changi Airport, and Singapore is… not known for being lenient on lawbreakers.

Still, for me at least, it was an amusing and entertaining video

What’s the longest you’ve stayed in an airport?
